Aralica successfully mastered many divergent elements in his fiction, so that his finest novels are both replete with contemplative wisdom sayings on human condition and rammed with action; also, his artistry is expressed in numerous naturalist passages integrated in the over-arching Christian vision of life where natural and the supernatural fuse into one reality. thumb 250px right A non-contemporary representation of the execution of Matija Gubec at the square in front of st.

History The town of Litija is first mentioned in church documents dating to 1145. It developed as a trading post between Trieste, Ljubljana, and Croatia. The town gained market rights (Market town) in the 14th century. According to Janez Vajkard Valvasor, the name evolved from ''litus'', the Latin word for 'riverbank'. In Roman times mining developed in Litija and remained one of the primary sources of income until the 1965, when the biggest of the mines closed. In 1849 the Austrian Southern Railway reached Litija and boosted its economy. This development, however, also meant a decline in some of the traditional local professions. area_served

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.
The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.
Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
